How big are the biggest spiders in the world and where are they located?

I've heard from some people that there is a spider called a Camel Spider that lives in Iraq and can get to be the size of a small dog. I'm very interested to know anything you guys have about the subject (:

From what I've read the camel spider isn't technically a spider, I looked it up, it's actually called a "solifugid", whatever that means.

As far as I know tarantulas are the largest spiders.

Well, I saw this tiny spider crawl under the door into my closet...
It's been 2 years since I opened the door, and it sounds like a giant rat is in there now...

The Giant Huntsman spider and tarantulas. And no camel spiders aren't "technically" spiders. They are something else that begins with an "s" the other answer got it.

The goliath birdeater tarantula of South America is arguably the biggest spider in the world. Watch as one hapless mouse wanders into a spider's deadly trap, and see the unusual adaptations that make the goliath one of nature's deadliest ambushers.

They are not local to me, but I've heard they can get to be a foot long/ wide. Look up Wikipedia!
